"Yeti" For Winter Reading

Winter is the perfect time to snuggle up with a great book and a big cup of coffee (or tea or maybe even hot chocolate). Are you "yeti?" Between January 2 and March 2,  you only need to read two books to enter the prize drawing. Each title you read thereafter earns you another prize drawing entry. Open to readers of all ages. Get your reading log at the library. Adult prize drawing is you guessed it - A Yeti and gift certificate to The Cranberry Creamery (did you know they have awesome coffee?). Kid prize drawing is a Squishmallow Bigfoot.
